eFuse, a web and mobile application that serves as the professional hub for esports and video games, has raised a $1.4 million seed round in preparation for the platform’s launch on Dec. 10, 2019. The Columbus startup, which launched in November 2018 by CEO Matt Benson, has secured funding from venture capital firm Ohio Innovation Fund.

As one of the fastest growing forms of entertainment across the globe, esports draw international competitors to tournaments with prize pools of up to $30 million and hundreds of millions of spectators.

eFuse has also built a seasoned team of employees and advisors to lead the company and works closely with marketing firm Moby Dick Unlimited in a shared office space.
